Outreach and Engagement Working Group
The outreach and engagement working group is made up of representatives from Royal Society of Biology Member Organisations. The group meet up to six times a year to share ideas and experiences and to discuss best practice, possible collaborations and hot topics in outreach and engagement. It is one of a number of groups set up in 2011 following the publication of the Science Communication Project Report.
